Don’t Call Nicole Richie Skinny

Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie had an unpleasant encounter with a paparazzo last week. A photographer actually had the balls to yell, “Nicole, you look disgusting. Gain some f*cking weight!” Richie, in tears, went over to the guy’s car and confronted him. She tells US Weekly:

“You don’t scream at people that they are overweight, so what makes people think that they have the right to scream at me that I am underweight? It’s upsetting and mean. I am not anorexic. At the moment, I was just sick of everyone constantly bothering me about how I look. I walked up to the photographer and told him, ‘What if I really had anorexia? What if I had a disease? How would you feel about saying such horrible things?’ He probably just wanted to get a rise out of me, but I’m a human being and he hurt my feelings.”
